Honestly the camera angles were weird and annoying. It was slow moving and the ending dissatisfying. The goal of the main character wasn't clear for a long time. And it wasn't really scary unless you're a teenage girl. I wanted to like this movie but it was disappointing.

Kind of close to a situation that was or had been surreal as best describeing what was not drug induced the movie needed for an excuse mixed with a touch of insanity to create. the moral of the story don't go living off grid alone in the woods with a view that's unlimited in one direction of the sky and forest canapy and then extreamly the other the almost nightly experiences would relate to this for working with what you have. Anyways don't go camping alone in the woods kids you go crazy..

An intriguing premise, great acting, and an intriguing concept gets completely and utterly muddled
